DDR-Liga was the second highest tier in the East German football league system. The league was played in two groups, with 16 clubs in each. After the merging between West and East Germany, the league was dissolved, and was replaced by the 2. Bundesliga.
The NOFV-Oberliga Nord, the equivalent of the DDR-Liga Staffel A, and the NOFV-Oberliga Süd, the former DDR-Liga Staffel B, are in a geographical sense the continuation of the old leagues, covering the same regions, albeit not on tier II level anymore, but as a tier V competition.
